Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thin off white head that drops slowly with the mildest of lacing. Color is a clear deep amber with no visible streaming carbonation.
Aroma: very, very mild. Just a bit of breadiness and slight caramel.
Mouthfeel: mostly light, slighty sticky with a dry finish.
Flavor: roasty caramel, bread crust, a bit of raisin and cocoa, with mild lingering hop bitterness.
Overall: nice, easy drinking beer that should pair well with many foods.

Format: a standard 355mL brown bottle with quite a busy standard macro label.

Appearance: a deep amber in colour tending toward brown, with a half-finger white head that lasts for some time. limited lacing.

Aroma: quite a light nose - light caramels and some sweet grains. A bit boring.

Taste: more caramel malts here with some hops that seem either herbal or floral - ahrd to tell as it is still quite demure.

Aftertaste: drops away quickly - just a small amount of bitterness.

Mouth feel: moderate in feel with a lower to moderate carbonation. I couldn't help but think it would be better with a bit higher carbonation.

Overall: not quite as bad a beer as I had been led to believe, but really it was just a bit boring. Perhaps it was intended as a half-way between standard low-taste lagers and a German style Bock? Whatever the case, it is not a great compromise.
